How to remove a floater from eye?

Floaters: Most common it is recommended to have an immediate exam when they first occur to rule out retinal detachment.

You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. Wait one year then consider surgery. ...Read more

Cataract is most common and should be considered. ...Read more
